This guest post is really a treat for me. The idea of sharing one of my heritage recipes with Isabel, from Family Foodie and her audience, is something to get me excited. She and I met through the incredible movement she started to bring people around the family table, called Sunday Supper. Of course, if you're reading this, you probably know about that. And you know what a positive, warm person she is. It comes through in her blog.
So I wanted to share something that would talk about my background and my kitchen today. This recipe is for alfajores. If you're not familiar with the name, it's a cookie sandwich. Two cornstarch cookies held together with a good dose of dulce de leche.
Please go over to Isabel's blog, enjoy all of her great recipes, especially her heritage Portuguese ones; I know you'll become a fan.
Of course I hope you make and enjoy this recipe for alfajores, you won't be disappointed.
Thanks again Isabel for taking the time to share this post, and to all of you for taking the time to read it.
